The history of pastis

We have a new book available in our store:
"Petit traité savant du Pastis".
In French only - unfortunately.

It is loaded with photos of vintage posters and pastis paraphernalia, plus numerous stories and anecdotes starting from the first trace of anise - 7,000 years ago in Nippur, capital of the Babylon Empire.
Of course a chapter about absynthe and the ensuing prohibition. And the story behind todays' brand names.

Price: $ 24.95
(the price in France is 21 Euro).
To order

US shipping is calculated automatically.
We can ship it anywhere outside the US for $ 10.00
